The head of USC overestimated the cost of repairing Admiral Kuznetsov after a fire

Recently сообщалосьthat the repair of the Heavy Airborne Cruiser (TAVRK) “Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov”, after a fire at the pier of the 35th Shipyard in Murmansk, resulting in casualties, could amount to 95 billion rubles. Then, this information caused a serious resonance, since the cost of the ship, without weapons and taking into account wear and tear, is 110 billion rubles. And so, the president of JSC United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Alexei Rakhmanov said that the elimination of damage from the fire at the Kuz (so-called sailors) can exceed 300 million rubles.

Tentatively neither will I frighten nor delight anyone. There are definitely no 90 billion there. But I also think that 300 million we will not get off

- said Rakhmanov.

Rakhmanov said that the final amount to eliminate the consequences can not yet be named, since the relevant commission is still working.

Given that the work has tightened up, I think that we still need some time to reconcile

- explained Rakhmanov.

It must be recalled that the state of emergency occurred on December 12, 2019, during welding. Two people died due to the spark falling into the hold, where the remains of fuel oil were. Moreover, representatives of the civilian Ministry of Industry and Trade were even included in the commission of inquiry. After that, various discussions began in the media about the feasibility of the further stay of this ship in the fleet due to its limited capabilities.

In turn, we hope that Kuzyu will be restored and preserved, at least as a floating training base for carrier-based aviation. Such a ship is simply necessary until the Russian Navy acquires at least one new aircraft carrier to replace the Kuze.

    Something in our country, almost all military departments "relaxed", they steal "out of order", then the deputy defense minister was imprisoned, then the head of the Federal Penitentiary Service, then half of the "Vostochny" was imprisoned ... the entire defense industry of our country is sacred for your execution by deed, and not to steal from the disadvantaged, and that's where our state stands. It already seems to me that if we cut off the hands of all our stealing officials, then all our "inhabitants of heaven" will be armless. And how do we want to equip our country if we are ruled by a thief on a thief, and a swindler on a swindler, and if you stop stealing from the state for at least half a year, the country will rise to the level of Switzerland.

      But Shoigu cheerfully reports on large% of new technology.
      And experts are talking with might and main about Russia's prodigy superweapon with Cartoons and Photos.

        And such "horror stories" are told by all politicians of different ranks and states, and even Estonia is ready to clash with Russia near Narva. And Shoigu, like Stoltenberg, talks about his own, professional, and you look how many young guys who want to serve in the Russian army now dream of serving in the Russian army, because this did not happen 5-8 years ago, and you still blame Sergei Kuzhugetovich, and compare him with previous Russian Defense Ministers Pavel Grachev, Igor Sergeev and Anatoly Serdyukov ...

          As you can see, I divided Shoigu and experts. In% of his% is often doubted, but they do not speak against. I agree. And with experts, any piece of iron strives to turn into a child prodigy ...

      ... how do we want to equip our country if we are ruled by a thief on a thief, and a swindler on a swindler

      There is an opinion that this is normal.
      If a person has "risen" to such a position, then he has earned this right.
      A couple of millionaires to the left and this is only good for the cause, because everyone around is also stealing.

      In vain you Fedya
      for me, my people are my kin.
      I'm without thoughts about the people
      I can’t live a day! ..
      In the morning I smear a sandwich -
      Immediately thought: what about the people?
      And the caviar does not climb into the throat,
      And compote does not pour into your mouth!

      After all, they, like the damned, work day and night for the good, it is simply unlucky with the people.

    ... including depreciation, is 110 billion rubles.

    Is that a washing machine? Then we'll buy from the Chinese newer, cheaper and two at once.
    I thought the potential value of such weapons was somehow measured differently.
    The tendency to write off was clear immediately after the accident, "the process started."
    Just somehow shy at first.

      Never mind, guys, as it comes to business, the "old" will come in handy - just look how many old equipment we have at the BDH, and how many antediluvian lizards - steam locomotives at such bases, a little tricked, oiled, poured water, threw coal, and - "Our steam locomotive, fly forward ....", but you could melt all this in the ovens and put it on the pots.

        ... antediluvian dinosaurs - steam locomotives on such bases, a little tricked, oiled, poured some water, threw coal, and - "Our steam locomotive, fly forward ...."

        So that's the problem. Lizards are not interesting to anyone, smear and ride. Almost everything that is more or less not so old, but has the potential for improvement and modernization, for some reason goes to pots.
        The trend since the nineties, the higher the potential - the faster the nails.
